A Polka Dot 'Thinking Of You'
I had such fun making this card! The theme of this week's challenge on Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog is "Polka Dots EVERYWHERE" and I love polka dots! I used one of Cheryl's digital images called 'Thinking of You' and after I colored the skin I paper painted it all using 3 different papers with polka dots. I outlined the pieced image with a blue marker that matched the background paper color and then cut out the entire image, leaving a thin blue border and glued it to the background paper - which is also covered with polka dots! I layered this onto a black cardstock card and added the white dots around the border with a white gel pen. Check out the great entries at http://sassycherylschallenge.blogspot.com/ for inspiration and fun!
Thank you for stopping by today to visit my blog! I love getting comments - in addition to the kind words, it is so much fun to get to know you and see what is going on at your blogs! I made it through yesterday's temps by NOT going outside except to open and then close my car windows. I worry that with the heat buildup inside the car they will explode! Wishing you a great day today!
